Easy on and off

The Mars II Pro doesn't have an on button. Instead, slide down the integrated lens cover.

Bright, for its size

Anker rates the II Pro at 500 lumens. I measured a bit less than that, but still in the ballpark.

Strapping

The faux-leather strap feels better than you might expect for the price.

Controls

The Bluetooth button is to convert the Mars II Pro into a Bluetooth speaker.

Connections

Just one HDMI connection, which is fine for something this size. The USB lets you play files from a thumb drive or recharge your phone.

Fans

Even LED light engines need airflow to stay cool. If you're close to the Mars II you'll hear it, but it's not loud.

Side vents

The large side vents improve airflow, and also let out the sound from the dual 10-watt speakers.

Tripod mount

The Mars II sits find on its own, or you can mount it to a tripod.

Remote

You can use the remote, but it's a bit easier to use the free app, available for both Android and iOS.
